Letters - Staffs council is a Facebook veteran

Last week's edition of PRWeek describes how Essex County Council claims to be the first UK council to use Facebook as a PR tool (News, 26 October).

But at Staffordshire County Council, we have been using Facebook and MySpace for some time as a PR tool to try to engage young people and reduce the level of underage drinking in the county. While I have no evidence that Staffordshire is the first local authority to be doing this, we were certainly ahead of Essex.

Tim Ash, communications and marketing officer, Staffordshire County Council.
